The Masa Experience

Masa Israel is home to the widest variety of mid-and-long term international experiences in Israel for young Jewish adults (18-30). We will  help you find the right intern, study abroad, volunteer, or gap program for you.


Masa’s immersive Israel experiences, among the best in the international experience space, empower participants to develop as individuals, while also developing a robust global professional network that includes Israelis and Jews from around the world. Since its founding in 2004 by the Prime Minister’s Office of the Government of Israel, together with The Jewish Agency for Israel, over 110,000 young Jews from more than 60 countries have participated in Masa Israel Programs.
